Page 46 of 77 February 2019 • 43 COVER STORY CAMBRIDGE PAVERS COLORING AGENTS, FACE MIXES To extend its product color spectrum, Cambridge Pavers tasked Venator Corp. with engineering two Granumat automatic dos- ing assemblies to deliver blends of conventional Granufin pig- ments—two reds, one yellow, two blacks—plus newly adopted mint green and blue pigments from the series. Standley Batch designed three-chute hoppers (lower right) to hold and dispense colored mixes from the Teka THT 500 mixers. Each hopper has three discharge doors, affording Cambridge Pavers permutations of 18 color blends on short belt sequences. A servo motor driving the belt that transfers face mixes to the Tiger PS-1000 has an infinite range of speeds to maximize blending options. PHOTOS: Cambridge Pavers; Concrete Products
